Anyone ever seen a Vanson with Crown Zippers?

I know they only started in 1974 and this doesn't even have the oldest label, but it has all Crown zippers. Unusual?

I have an old model E with the same zipper.
Crown zippers were manufactured at the Spool cotton company , which, at one point, was operated by Coats Clark.
Thus the Crown logo on the bottom end.

Currently, I have a nice size 46 Reed CR in the classified with that very same zipper. What I like about those particular zippers is the nice nickle finish.

You're absolutely correct, it has the Crown track and the C&C pull. Must be one of the early Vansons....
